Best PC Performance Settings to Increase FPS in Hogwarts Legacy Listed

Hogwarts Legacy on PC has tons of graphical and video settings to tinker with, each providing a balance between image quality and performance. Unless you’re rocking some of the best PC parts on the market, you may have trouble maintaining 60 FPS or higher during intense moments.

Here’s a list of settings you can change, and what we recommend using for the best results:

  • Window Mode – Windowed Fullscreen or Fullscreen
  • Upscaling Type – Nvidia DLSS (if possible)
  • Upscale Mode – Nvidia DLSS Quality (if possible)
  • Vsync – Off
  • Framerate – 60 FPS or higher
  • Motion Blur – Off

  • Post Process Quality – Low or Medium
  • Shadow Quality – Low
  • Texture Quality – Medium

Of course, these settings are primarily meant to increase FPS in Hogwarts Legacy, but end up sacrificing graphical quality in the process. If your FPS is skyrocketing after making these changes, it’s advised to keep bumping up various settings to Medium or High until you’re satisfied with your performance. Soon enough, you’ll find that perfect balance between quality and performance.
